. michelle obama is set to appear on dr. oz's daytime talk show today to talk about healthy exercise and eating on the campaign trail. the first lady reportedly stands up on the set and teaches dr. oz how to do the dougie. >> bill: oh, my god. that is just an internet sensation. >> yeah. >> bill: thank you, dan. yes indeed just getting off of politics a tad this morning here to start the day. we always think about the big stories and the stories that people are talking about or going to be talking about today and you are going to be talking about today. it is any front page of the "washington post" this morning, and the headline is "a breastfeeding quiz." it is okay to best feed in class when you are a teacher in front of your class? that's the question. it's a young professor after american university here in washington, d.c. who did this, and a lot of people raising the question was this over the line? and i ask you that question. 866-55-press, but first let's just settle back and find out the facts. okay. here it is. a young professor, her name is adrian pine, s
obama today, he needs surrogates like clinton. he's got some now. he's got michelle, castro, rahm, he's got chuck schumer out there, a lot of people. he has duval patrick out there. he has a lot of people, perhaps dozens of them that can give speeches that punch back at the republicans. it doesn't have to be barack obama out there taking all the hits. he could have a whole team of people. he has to stop using staff. he has to stop using staffers like plouffe and axelrod and those people. he has to start using political principles. i think that's really important. i have somebody yelling back here. i'm be sure if it is positive or negative here. back to you, rachel. >> i'm pretty sure that is david axelrod to you saying he shouldn't be going on national television anymore. >> at a certain point volume trumps point of view. to chris's point about surrogates and what will happen next, it is not just president obama speaking tomorrow night. they've put the president and the vice president on the same night. vice president biden actually got a huge cheer tonight in the hall when president

unifier at the republican convention was barack obama. i mean that is just the way it is. bill: todd, if you go back to pampa, i saw gingrich on stage, i saw santorum on stage. i saw michele bachmann and herman cain. >> yeah. this was, if anything, tampa was a celebration of republican unity but joe is right that for every convention when you have a challenger who has gone through a primary you do have to go through this process. let's not forget in 2008 at the democratic convention 40% of democrats still wanted hillary clinton to be their nominee. >> that's right. >> that was significant division. and obviously it didn't really hurt barack obama all that much. bill: to both of you in the 30 seconds left, todd, does this make a difference and how much of a difference united versus divided or division or unity however you want to define it, how does that play out in '64 days? >> it would make a significant difference if it were true but it is not true. the fact is republicans are overwhelmingly united behind mitt romney. democrats are overwhelmingly united behind barack obama. bill: j
